The Aktina Memorial Cradle provides a unique method for patient immobilization. Originally co-developed between Aktina Medical and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the system utilizes side pressure on the patient to achieve superior immobilization and patient comfort. This unique modular approach allows for excellent flexibility in SBRT positioning with direct index to table crossbar and paddle sets.
- Actively supports the patient in position – applies lateral side pressure on the patient to increase inter- and intra-treatment setup accuracy and reproducibility
- Modular – the system is cost and space effective since only required components are purchased
- Open system – no bulky overlays – minimizes attenuation and increases treatment options and flexibility
- Universal – easily adapts to any treatment or CT couch top
